Gory, goofy musical is bloody and bombastic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Certainly in the future, depicted here so stylishly, Andrew Lloyd Webber is probably turning in his grave.

Falling somewhere between Rocky Horror, Moulin Rouge! and Eyes Without A Face (with songs!), Repo! The Genetic Opera is the filmic equivalent of what architects call a 'folly'.

I hated this movie.

I don't know if words can describe just how awful and disgusting and insulting this movie was to watch.
November 5, 2008
Rips off heavy metal and horror aesthetics to absolutely dismal effect.

for all its mish-mash of genres and ideas, it's mostly just a confusing musical.
Full Review | Original Score: 46/100

While it may be unfair to compare Repo! to Whedon's Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, a vastly superior three-webisode-long comic- book musical, it's necessary.

This is a Grand Guignol science fiction rock opera. The plot is minimal and for a rock opera, there is too little real melody.

The smudgy pall cast over everything by director Darren Lynn Bousman might work for a five-minute music video, but it quickly becomes as tiresome as the general air of bombastitude.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
November 6, 2008
Deserves points for showing some guts in a year of bland musicals ... It's just too bad the music's so one-note.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Repo! might have been an SNL or MADtv skit, but as a movie, it should be repossessed by its financiers.

If you're looking for insight into the death and resurrection of Christ, look no further: I can think of no better means by which to experience the cumulative effect of three days in hell in under 100 minutes.

So embarrassing that, for the first time, I wanted to avert my eyes from the screen, although that might have also been because Repo! appears to have been shot with a cell phone.

Talented actors are involved, and I will spare them by not citing their names.

Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of several Saw sequels, has devised an excruciating new torture with Repo! The Genetic Opera.

Andrew Lloyd Webber meets SAW!

A movie in search of a cult. Good luck.
